Weeklong Outreach from October 29th through November 5th to Include Building Homes, Serving People with Special Needs, Veterans, Feeding the Homeless and Hungry, Mentoring Youth and Much More
PARSIPPANY, NJ - October 9th, 2017 – In an effort to serve an increasing number of people in need and the local non-profit organizations laboring to serve them, Liquid Church, one of New Jersey’s fastest-growing Christian churches, will mobilize 4,000 volunteers to give 10,000 hours of service in one week, Love Week, to communities across multiple counties in New Jersey.
“At Liquid Church, we know when we put our gifts and passions together, we can make a huge difference,” said Tim Lucas, lead pastor and founder of Liquid Church. “During Love Week, we’re getting out of our seats and going into our local communities all across New Jersey to serve homeless veterans, kids with special needs, the elderly, and those hungry for the love and compassion of Jesus!”
Each of the hundreds of community service projects planned for Love Week looks a little different. Times for service opportunities range from morning, during the day, or in the evening and options are available for individuals to sign up on their own or with a group. Projects are also available for families to serve together with their children, including families of children with special needs.
Examples of opportunities to serve with Liquid Church during Love Week are as follows:
Essex County - Hoops-4-Kicks - Nutley, NJ: Hoops-4-Kicks is a 3-on-3 basketball tournament for high school students to collect shoes for people in need across the globe, including hurricane victims. Volunteers and competitors are encouraged to donate new or lightly-used shoes to participate.
Middlesex County - Hugs for Brady 5K Run - Cranbury, NJ: The Hugs for Brady Foundation is dedicated to helping kids battling childhood cancer. The 5K run will take place as part of the organization’s Halloween Family Fun Festival, during which volunteers will help with activities such as face painting, food trucks, vendor tents, and a “trunk-or-treat” car show.
Morris County - Parsippany PAL - Parsippany, NJ: The Parsippany PAL provides over 4,000 local children with various activities and sports programs. Volunteers are invited to help prepare classrooms and commons areas for painting, among other projects throughout the day.
